>> with just 10 days until it is time to pull the lever, the economy is not in full recovery mode. the president is pulling out a 20 page pamphlet that he said will bring the economy back. but if you look inside there is new spending from teachers and infrastructure and energy investments and it is a stimulus plan that will not work. so is this the right or wrong plan to get america working again? hi, everybody. welcome to forbes on fox and go with steve forbes and rick unger and elizabeth mcdonald and john. >> right or wrong policy for america? >> it is a doctor bleeding the patient. it will not cure the patient but make it worse. it takes resources and will cost jobs and every job created with that means two or fewer job private sector. that will not make the economy come back. >> rick, the new economic patriotism. does it mean i am unpatriotic if i don't agree with this. >> i don't think so. >> don't like patriotism with economic plan. >> if you are going to get behind the country you need to get behind some of the thing in the plan. most particularly i like the infrastructure
economy and to also improve the economy over where it has been over the last four years. host: we have been talking about the jobs numbers that are coming out today. here are the october numbers. 7.9%, slightly up from 7.8% from september. in issuing 171,000 jobs added in october. this is according to the u.s. bureau of labor statistics this morning. i want to get your quick reaction to those numbers. guest: first of all, that is virtually no change. yes, it is an uptick and it was a down tick the month before, and but unemployment is basically staying around 8%. if you count the people who have given up looking for jobs in this country, we have over 20 million people who are unemployed right now. those are the people that we have to address, there needs, their concerns, and make sure they have a job. by producing 12 million jobs, a lot of these people will be put back to work. if we continue the policies of the last four years, i'm afraid we're going to see the next no. for unemployment is going to be 8%-- next norm will be around 8% and around that 20 million figure. i think we can d
making closing arguments on an issue that's been front and center throughout the campaign. did an economy in need of a spark find one in october? u.s. employers across nearly all sectors were hiring, for a net gain of 171,000 new jobs. the labor department also revised its august and september figures higher, by 84,000. all told, it signaled slow but steady growth, and it was news that president obama wanted to play up in the campaign's final weekend, especially in one critical state. >> "oh (io), oh (io)" >> brown: the president made three stops in the buckeye state, starting in hilliard, just outside columbus. >> in 2008, we were in the middle of two wars and the worst economic crisis since the great depression. and today, our businesses have created nearly five and a half million new jobs. and this morning, we learned that companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. ( applause ) >> brown: and the trend line seemed promising, as well. since july, the economy has added an average of 173,000 jobs per month, up from just 67,000 a month in the spring.
. there are people who want to serve when the economy changes, could impact this? yes. but right now, i feel it is not impacting our recruiting. it does not impact our quality operationally, and hopefully that will continue. >> you have been in the job for a little over a year now. god willing and things go right, you have three more years to go. i know that much of the decade before you took this job, it was not in the middle of the night and waking up and saying, what would i do if i was the chief? you have other things on your mind. what has surprised you the most in coming into this circumstance? >> well, i think, -- i guess i've got to be careful. one of the things i tell everybody what i was the commander in iraq and the commander of the core there, have the freedom to make some pretty significant decisions. that freedom is not quite the same here in washington. that is probably one of the biggest adjustment. i had to realize i did not have complete autonomy. i knew that, but it took me a while to understand that really. the real challenges that we have are that we have this large orga
people they're talking to are telling them, the economy is still the central issue in this campaign. >> i think the economy is not doing well and i think romney is the guy that can turn it around, gets back on track, get things going again for starters and i'm worried about the budgets, the deficits. all my kids are in their 30s and we need the bubbling economy to move them along. >> a lot of people are hurting right now. but the president's ideology is what we need. >> i would say that the stimulus package was a really big success and i thought that, you know, i want government to play a role in our lives and i have a feeling that romney doesn't think that it should. >> let's met bring in jonathan althar. welcome to my home state. let's talk about the economy and we put it in the context of the latest poll. jonathan, is this an economy election in ohio? >> it always is. this is the heartland of america and even when the economy isn't as big as it is this year, in ohio in particular, it's about those working class voters and whether they think that one candidate or the other is providing
in this country to push our economy and improve the economy over the next four years. host: breaking news this morning. we have been talking about the jobs numbers coming out today. 7.9%, slightly up from 7.8%, the unemployment rate, from september. showing 171,000 jobs added in october, this according to the u.s. bureau of labor statistics this morning. i want to get your quick reaction to those numbers. guest: first of all, that is virtually no change. yes, it is an uptick, and it was down the month before. but unemployment is staying basically around 8%. if you count the people of -- who have given up looking for jobs in this country, we have over 20 million people who are unemployed right now. we have to address their needs and concerns, and make sure they have jobs over the next four years. by producing 12 million jobs, a lot of these people will be put back to work. if we continue the policies of the last four years, i am afraid we will see the next norm for unemployment in this country will be 8%, and the unemployment figures are going to stay around that 20 million figure. i think
we study. in a free market economy, recessions and recoveries, upswings and down swings are part and parcel of the world we live in. when you look at how budgets are proposed, off of the congressional budget office projection. they are not that realistic. in 2014, 2015, 2016, they are projected real gdp growth of 4.4%. sounds pretty good. how realistic is it? if you take a look at reality, what's happened since the beginning of the century? gdp has grown at 1.7% and we know we are in a pretty sluggish economy. there is a huge disconnect between what's proposed and what's going on outside this window? >> that's the big deal. the claim is, i'm going to go in and cut taxes. don't worry, cutting taxes is going to be stimulative. we are going to end up with way more jobs and there will be fewer taxes from each individual. there will be way more people paying into the tax system. revenue neutral. lakshman is telling us you have a choice over how much you charge people in taxes. they may not produce all the jobs. what he is doing on day one is adding to the deficit. >> could be but let'
%. that's a 12-point swing. the question of whether or not this economy has turned the corner is no longer a question. it's turned the corner thanks mostly to the work of president obama. >> professor, romney today tried to provide a vision of what he'd like to do as president. let's take a listen to mr. romney. >> i know that when i'm elected the economy and the american job market will still be stagnant, but i won't waste any time complaining about my predecessor. i won't spend my effort trying to pass partisan legislation that's unrelated to economic growth. gee said he won't spend his time complain being his predecessor. in fact, he'll take credit for the economic recovery that's under way as he took credit for the success of the education in massachusetts even though he was only governor for four years. >> clearly the economy is not stagna stagnant. there are a lot of different statistical data that suggests the economy is slowly but steadily recovering, and it's real interesting for mr. romney to sort of suggest he's not going to play social conservative politics when he's been playi
as the race for the white house reaches its conclusion. no mat wrer i ter where i go, t economy is the most important issue in this election. i've been traveling with john avalon. he joins me now as does my good friend christine romans. she joins me from washington. jim acosta from did he back to you, iowa, where mitt romney just landed. brianna keeler is in milwaukee, wisconsin, traveling with president obama. let's start here in ohio. the state has a very complex economy. here's some of what we've been hearing from voters on this trip. >> just a lot of depressed areas. a lot of joblessness. >> just looking at the unemployment rate, it's so scary to me. >> the last four years has not been very good for our small business. >> with the debt crisis, our country has, that burden is going to be on us in the future. >> all of the skills i had are obsolete now. >> i'm not up at the white house. i don't see rich people all the time. i see a lot of poor people. >> shut down, closed, reduced wages, ship the jobs overseas. we lost 55,000 factories. >> we're probably never have the things that we did
. part of why ohio's economy has bounced back is we did not let detroit go bankrupt. the obama administration bailed out the automobile industry. it's roared back to life and the big three are hiring again. yesterday mitt romney gave that obama administration success story a little mitt romney tickle. >> i saw a store today that one of the great manufacturers in this state is thinking of moving all production to china. >> wow. mr. romney saying, hey, don't get too comfy there, ohio, with the obama rescue of the automobile industry. it's been better. we saved everything here and that's why you have jobs, but don't get too comfy. i read they are moving all the jobs working for jeep. they are moving all the jeep jobs to china. he said that in ohio on the campaign trail 12 days before the election. and it is not true at all. the real jeep news that day was actually that chrysler announced they were adding 1100 new jobs in the u.s. here making jeeps in detroit. and chrysler says it could hire almost as many people at another plant in warren, michigan. chrysler is investing half a bi
than on the day obama took office. he has not met on the economy or the budget or on jobs. with neither of the republican leader of house or senate since july. >> the president and governor romney reacting to the october jobs report. 171,000 jobs. the u-#, the broader, under employment rate if you will is 14.6. that is what it has been. then if you look at the adjusted unemployment rate, this is the unemployment rate is the labor force was equal to what it was in january of 2009. what about this and how it plays to the race? bill kristol of "weekly standard." kirsten powers for daily beast. and syndicated columnist charles krauthammer. charles? >> these are the numbers you get when you have a stagnant economy. stagnant unemployment. if you keep up with the numbers of jobs added, barely enough to keep up with the increase in population. unemployment takes up. people's perception of the economy have been fixed. unchanged for at least six months. so i think it has zero effect on the economy. on the election, i mean. in terms of the people who vote on the economy. so i think it's probably a
hampshire's economy is humming along and unemployment is at less than 6%, so when president obama and mitt romney visit the battleground state, their stump speeches tend to include promises of more job creation. our david mattingly visited two small businesses there to see what their executives think about the candidates' proposals. >> reporter: randi, victor, the unemployment rate in this critical battleground state is under 6% and well under the national average, so when it comes to campaign promises about creating jobs, businesses here say leave that to the professionals. two new hampshire small businesses that found a way to beat the recession. one is a free-wheeling tech company. producing codes that makes e-mail and the internet work better. the other has been in business for five generations. >> high carbon steel photograph needles. >> reporter: manufacturing metal pins for everything from antique phonographs to the military. >> these are ping that go into the ammunition boxes for the u.s. government. >> reporter: in tough times they both found ways to create new jobs. what every ca
thanksgiving when winds. and then the market will get back to trying to figure out what is the economy, what will earnings do. from current levels i think we have some decent upside next year. lori: department stores, application software, given the hurricane and the aftermath you heard home depot, are you changing some strategies? given that disaster? >> our investors, given with the retail investors in it for the longer haul. the home-improvement retailers, they have really done well, and things are selling right now. plywood, tarps, all those things are low margin items and while they have seen a jump since sandy hit in the market has reopened, i don't know how much they're really going to get out of sandy, but they will get more out of a continuation of the economic recovery so if you are in those we want you to stay in those, but we are not trying to get our investors in and out of stocks quickly based on the aftermath of the hurricane. lori: until your talking but the treasuries, are you taking up the space, we'd advise equities? >> even though the market is pretty close, the year-end
, the military and the economy. and what's going to happen with it. >> i think it's really important that we have a president who understands the needs of all the people and isn't just focused on the wealthiest. >> i'm probably going to say jobs, especially with the insurance with obamacare because what they're doing right now is, i just don't think that washington has any comprehension what's going on. >> i want bipartisanship and people working together is my biggest issue. >> my wife is always right. >> so, it's interesting to get their perspective, even though most of them do not want to say who they were voting for and it's worth pointing out, uma, the senate race is airtight as well. republican george allen and democrat tim kaine raised combined 30 million dollars, outside groups pumped in another 40 million and at this point today, three days out, they are essentially tied. back to you. >> wow, a very, very tight race indeed. thank you very much. we'll wrap up our team coverage in florida where governor romney is maintaining the lead over the president and two key voting blocks in florida,
. he has not met on the economy or budget or jobs with either the republican leader of the house or senate since july. so instead of bridging the divide he's made it wider. how has he fallen so sort of what he promised. in part because he never led before or worked across the aisle or understood how jobs are created in the real economy. so today he makes new promises. promises heel be enable to keep because he admits he's going to stay on the same path. the same path means $20 trillion in debt. it means crippling unemployment. stagnant take home pay. depressed home values and a devastated military. unless we change we may be looking at another recession. the question of this election comes down to this do you want more of the same or do you want real change? [applause] now president obama promised change but he couldn't deliver it. i promised change and i have a record of achieving it. [applause] i actually built a business and i the turned another business i put orms back on track and with -- olympics back on track. i put my state sfr job loss to job growth and from higher taxes
for the president? >> i think if you look at all the economic indicators and where we've seen the economy move over the last three years, especially given what the president inherited in 2009, americans should feel good about the direction we're going in. we've had 33 straight months of new private sector jobs added. second month under 8% for unemployment. we still have work to do. that's what's so important about this election. we need to stick with president, show up and vote for the president so we can keep the policies moving forward that have gotten us headed back the right direction. and not go backwards to the economic policies of the past, the ones that mitt romney is advocating for where you have a trickle down economic attitude. that's exactly what got us into this mess in the first place. we feel good about the report on friday. we know there's a on the more to do. and the president is going to keep working until every american who wants a job can get a job. but we feel like the economy is a good issue for us and the president is proud of his record. >> brent colburn, hope you get some s
the impact on our first responders. i'm worried about the impact on our economy and on transportation. the election will take care of itself next week. right now, our number one priority is to to make sure that we are saving lives that are search and rescue teams will be in place and people will get the food, the water shs the shelter they need in case of emergency and we respond as quickly as possible to get the economy back on track. >> the election will take care of itself. that was president obama addressing reporters earlier today at the white house. this is one of the things you can't really predict in terms of the effect on a presidential campaign. this massive storm, a storm of more than regional, basically national significance. it's hit the pause button on a presidential campaign. it's hard to know how it's going to play out exactly. mostly because we don't know what the overall impact of the storm itself is going to be. the defacto suspension of the campaign itself today and the handling of this crisis by president obama and to a lesser extent mitt romney made themselves be
. we were losing like 800,000 jobs a month. and now we are coming back. i just think the economy is getting a lot better now under a democratic administration. host: i appreciate the call from kentucky this morning. i want to point out another facebook post. this from justin from the upstate new york area. he writes -- at least i am not bombarded with a negative campaign ads while i am watching jeopardy. let us go to rwanda from oklahoma on our line for republicans, how is the campaign playing out in a solidly red state of oklahoma? caller: yes, we are the reddest of the red states. everyone of our counties has gone to mitt romney, and i think we will do it again. what i am calling to about is something that you will never hear from mitt romney, that he does not talk about, that he does not solicit people to speak about, and that is about his incredible generosity. we have heard on television the people coming forward and speaking about the times that he has, without any publicity, that he has contributed to their welfare and so many different ways. he has set of hospital beds an
economy standards to 55 miles per hour by the year 2025. that not only backs out 3 million barrels of oil a day from the persian gulf, all of the oil they import from the persian gulf, but it also reduces one full year of carbon dioxide emissions into the atmosphere. mitt romney is saying he'll roll back those standards. all the way down the line, there's a sharp contrast here of, you know -- there are no emergency rooms for planets. we either engage in preventive care here and reduce the amount of greenhouse gases that go into the atmosphere, or we are going to see ever greater intensifying catastrophic events hitting our country and causing tremendous damage to the american people. >> congressman, thanks so much for coming on the program. we appreciate it. let's go live to roanoke, virginia. mitt romney is at what they're calling a victory event at integrity windows and doors company. let's listen. >> it was powerful to listen to jake and to speak with his sister susan. the two of them are leaders, the top two people in their company. they're making products for america. they and their
is the state of the economy and we're slow in recovering. in iowa things are pretty good. 5.2% unemployment rate, so i'm wonderi wondering, are people in iowa feeling more like unemployment is at 5% or more like unemployment is at 7.8%? >> i think that depends on who you ask and when you and. if you talk about -- it's interesting to watch republicans, for example, in charge of the state, republican governor, for example. simultaneously touting the fact that the economy is on the move under his administration, and yet, you know, making the point that nationally the economy is still in bad shape. i think that iowa voters have been pretty clear that they feel better about the way things are going until the state than about the nation. you know, obviously, we're all paying attention to the national news, you know, here today in iowa. everyone is hanging on the news about hurricane sandy and what's happening to our friends on the east coast. so, you know, people do pay attention to the national and not just what's going on in their own neighborhood. >> what jumped out at me about this endorsemen
any attempt to stimulate the economy or pass legislation to help create jobs in this country. they openly brag about that, you know, their plan is to make president obama a one-term president. they kill compromise deals, brokered between democrats and republicans. this is the party mitt romney will lead if he's president. he won't reach across the aisle. he'll turn his back on the folks on the other side of the aisle. and it will be more of the same. mitt romney has no plan for taxes. he can't be direct on that. he has no plan when it comes to repealing obama care and what he's going to replace it with. and what about immigration? which in these last few weeks hasn't gotten a whole lot of attention. he has no plan for america. and now he's going to be the guy who's going to reach across the aisle? get your cell phones out. i want to know what you think. tonight's question. who do you trust to work with the other side? text "a" for president obama, text "b" to mitt romney to 622639. always to our blog at ed.msnbc.com. we'll bring you the results later on in the show. joining m

[cheers and applause] >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate down to 5.2% right now. today we learned that it's actually 7.9%, and that is 9 million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. megyn: chris stirewalt the fox news digital politic
